The pre-frontal cortex, the part of our brain just behind the forehead, manages the 'executive office' in our neurological system. The brain's 'management functions' are handled by this region of the brain, including
and working memory.
Psychologists and Neurologists have demonstrated that the pre-frontal cortex is the last brain region to mature - a process that is not complete until the mid '20's. Part of the maturation process involves insulation of complex neural networks.
Achievement behaviors are significantly impacted by pre-frontal cortex functionality. Research out of Naperville, IL and elsewhere has identified behavioral habits that enhance these 'executive function' cognitive skills.
We are big time cheerleaders for brain health and enthusiastically share the good news from these critically important studies.
